2:51 am
craig: at the "new york times." the home of culture! >> we like to think so. craig: yes, you do, don't you? [laughter] i'm intrigued by this book. i'm about 40 pages into it. it is making of "network." >> howard beale. i'm as mad as hell as i'm not going to take it anymore. craig: i'm as mad as hell and i'm not going to take it anymore. it was great. i was surprised. why were you fascinated by a whole book about this movie? >> it is not just about this crazy moment in 1976 when this movie came out, but it is a movie about what happened to television and the media. when you look at what television is now, it is bunch of people looking into the camera, making stuff up at the top of their head. talking in slightly funny accents. craig: hey, you swanky new york bastard! you got me turned around! no, i'm interested because that -- the movie came out in 1976. punk rock started in 1975. it feels like all popular
2:52 am
culture went crazy in the mid 1970's. >> yes. america was a very frustrating place at that time. craig: and in the u.k.. it was very bad there, i remember. sort of. >> i was just being born, myself. so i don't have any memories whatsoever. i'm told it was not just disco balls and cocaine. people were really pent up about inflation and the end of the watergate era and problems in the mideast. craig: hippies. hippies.aig:he hippies were there. the "new york times" driving everybody crazy. >> so there was a writer who wrote a movie not only about a television network going bonkers where they have a tv anchor who is losing his mind and they wanted to keep him on the air to drive up ratings. this becomes a vehicle for all the frustrations that the
2:53 am
country is feeling at that time. craig: it is funny how that never happened in real life. >> oh, no. everybody got sane. craig: it is funny. it is very prophetic. the movie is very prophetic. it is a strange one. i was surprised to hear that the big famous speech was done on the first day of filming! >> a portion of it is. there are portions of it where you're watching peter finch through a tv monitor in other people's houses and in the studio. that was shot on the very first day. then a couple of days later, they shoot the big scene of him looking into camera. i'm mad as hell. they only shot one and a half takes of that speech. craig: because he was ill? >> he kind of lost his mojo. he gave one huge performance of it. it took a lot out of him. sidney lumet, the director said let's go again. they get about a minute into the second take and finch kind of says i can't go on anymore. lumet says, ok, fine.
2:54 am
1 1/2 takes. craig: you only have to get it on camera once, i guess. a lot of these great moments in america, you know that scene in "good fellas"? >> the tracking take. craig: it was one take. >> think how many times they had to shoot it to get it right. craig: they just did it that day. they didn't even rehearse. >> is that true? craig: no. >> you can say anything on tv and it becomes true. craig: no, you can say anything in "the "new york times" and it books true. if you say it on tv, it is just crap going out. that's all. some of the stuff you wrote, not only do you work at "new york times," but also you're talking about a beloved piece of -- do we call it americana? i suppose it is, isn't it? >> sure! craig: do you feel any risk exposing yourself to other people's opinions? there is one or two on the internet who may disagree with
2:55 am
what you say. i know what you're thinking. craig, the internet is a place for weasely discussion and argument. >> exactly. i'm going to go there after the show vapid a frank discussion with these people. craig: there are going to be a lot of attacks. >> i try to be careful with something like this. you're talking about a writer who passed away in 1981. i spoke to as many surviving people as i could. i got access to his papers. he is very much represented in those papers, but yeah, you are always thinking about am i representing this person accurately and everyone will tell you that patty was a feisty, cantankerous guy. there were people who got bowls of matzo ball soup thrown at them by him. they are proud of this. they are thrilled this guy did this. craig: see, i would do that to him m him, but he is too far away. >> we can order out. craig: that would be a great bit. we just throw matzo balls at him. that's right, you, baby!
2:56 am
i'm mad as hell and i'm not going to take it anymore. so the last time i interviewed you, no, you interviewed me. we were at the tv -- >> yes, the paley - craig: you were gooded a interviewing. new knew things about my life. and said hey, that time you did that thing. i was like i could never do that. >> i just googled you. craig: that's how i do it. >> now the interviewer is becoming the interviewee. craig: the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind. it is hakuna matada, the circle of life. >> you're just a fountain of wisdom. craig: yes, i am. apparently. not new york times fountain of wisdom. just a small puddle of knowledge. not even knowledge. more like a damp cloth of gossip. so how are things in new york? all right? >> rather chilly. craig: yes, a little bit. >> we're digging ourselves out
2:57 am
from whatever the latest polar vortex. craig: are we still talking about the new york time or new york? >> i'm going to come back to the "new york times" and discover my desk has been cleared off. craig: no, it is a great american institution. what are you talking about? if you can't poke fun of the "new york times," then you're not participating. that's what i say. we're out of time, dave. it is a very interesting book, though. you're a very interesting man. i'm glad you're here. david itzkoff, everybody! we'll be right back. i am totally blind.

hi, everybody, i'm beth troutman, great videos from the web are coming your way "right this minute." a woman hops on the elevator with two dogs. the elevator begins to go up and so does fido. >> oh, no. >> see the shocking turn of events and how she worked frantically to save her best friend. i was hysterically curled into a ball crying and he was running around, oh, that's fine. >> after a daredevil scales a bridge he figures -- >> i'm already at the top of this thing i might as well do some other stunts. >> the backflip that will make your stomach flip. it's a birds-eye view of bears in their habitat. >> the bears are walking by, little fella, i'll go over here.

3:07 am
long. let's break it down. the big dog walks in and the leash is dragging behind it. she's not holding the leash, so the dog knows where he's going. the owner knows where she's going, they all jump in the elevator but the leash is still hanging outside, so when the elevator doors close probably the little handle to the leash is the other side of the doors and that's what pulls the dog out. >> that's a hefty dog. >> big dog. >> the woman in the elevator is tamara siebert and she's joining us from toronto. she joins us "right this minute." what was going through your mind when you saw your poor dog rocket up to the ceiling of the elevator? >> i panicked and i tried to do whatever i could to get him down. i had his leash and he came in behind me and i went to pick it up and before i could pick it up, it slid through my hands and it fell out. i went to the buttons and there's no emergency stop button which i thought i would be. it's a nylon leash, the actual leash didn't snap it's the ry
